Before the Reformation dispute between Eck and Luther at Pleissenburg it is said that the assembly knelt and the solemn chant of the Veni Creator was sung three times. Attributed to Charlemagne, but almost certainly older, the first portion of this Latin hymn has been translated in an appendix to the Book of Common Prayer as -
"Come, Holy Ghost, Creator come, Thou art the comforter, the Gift and visit all the souls of Thine; Of God most High, the Fire of Love, Thou hast inspired our hearts with life, The everlasting Spring of joy, Inspire them now with life divine. And holy Unction from above."
In this very readable book, originally called Veni Creator, Handley Moule asks us to come with the same unifying spirit, not to a great battle of arguments but a series of quiet meditations upon the person and the work of the Spirit: both in our lives and in our church.
The second book in the series following on from the bestselling Rainforest AdventuresChildren are fascinated with the natural world around them and with facts and information about animals that they have never seen. However often good nature programmes on T.V. or articles in magazines centre on evolution and completely ignore the Creator. Each story has a Bible verse and lesson for the reader to take away. Written by someone who spent his life in the Rainforest this book has the added benefit of being written by someone who has been there lived there and experienced the culture not just someone who has read the encyclopaedias.
Handley Moule was Bishop of Durham from 1901-1920. Previously, he was a Professor of Divinity at the University of Cambridge. He was also one of the speakers at the first Keswick Convention.
